This high-resolution infrared image was taken by the NASA-ESA Cassini-Huygens mission during the first Titan fly-by on 26 October 2004, just before closest approach. The spatial resolution of the images, acquired by the VIMS instrument on board the Cassini orbiter gradually approaching Titan's surface, ranges between 2.6 and 1.8 kilometres per pixel. On the centre-right of the image a bright circular structure can be seen, which is interpreted as a volcanic dome.
